New Jersey readers might think that jobs with higher risks tend to pay better. However, it is important to understand that the pay may not be as high as some believe and being injured on the job can lead to permanent disability or even death. Therefore, it is necessary to weigh the potentially better pay against the higher risks involved in some jobs. A recent article discussed how well some of the more dangerous jobs pay.
